A Widow's Mite

It is amazing to see a Bible story replay right in front of you. But earlier this week that very thing happened. A community member came up to me during our dinner and asked if he could make a donation to our work. I knew he had very little money, so I told him there was no need to do so unless he could afford to give it. He produced a ten dollar bill and insisted I take it. He told me that he had recently won a bet and wanted to share a portion of his windfall went to Oasis. I was reminded about the Bible story of Jesus in the temple watching people make a show of contributing large amounts. Then a widow sheepishly gave a small coin, a mite. Jesus said that because she had given out of her poverty, her donation was the generous one.
